Fruits native to California?
My son was recently told in his social studies class that there were no fruits in California prior to the arrival of Europeans. I find that hard to believe. I'm imagining that what the teacher meant was that the fruits that we think of today (i.e. apples, oranges, bananas, etc.) didn't exist here then. But NO fruits?
So, I'm wondering if any of you knowledgeable folk know what the native fruits of California are (were - if they're no longer).
Thanks so much!
